RE: Bay Area Discovery Museum - any ideas?

The Dallas Museum of ARt had some really cool programs for art experiences, as well as a traveling Docent Program, called "Drop - In Art" and "Go Van Gogh" (Complete with painted van) respectively. I haven't lived there for a couple of years, so don't know what's happening these days, but their outreach program was great!

Subject: Bay Area Discovery Museum - any ideas?

Dear Art Educators,

I heard from Karen Hampton, Creative Arts Specialist at the Bay Area
Discovery Museum.
I would like to see this thread grow. Do you have any ideas for her?
Especially relating Art to Science?
I know everyone is SWAMPED right now - so maybe hold on to this email for
when you have more time.
Thanks in advance for any input (post ideas to the list) - Karen is on my
list of "experts" now.
